First, I hope you all have been well. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you! I have been a little busy and haven’t had as much time to devote to NewsforChews as I want. For the next few weeks I will be posting intermittently, so bear with me.
Second, I hope everyone had a great Easter! Did you find all the hidden eggs and get loads of candy?! Today’s tip is Easter candy related. I always find Peeps in my Easter basket, but I eat one or two then, I’m tired of biting into the marshmallow treat. So, today I wanted to give you a few other ways to use Peeps! First up is as a simple topping to hot cocoa!
Simply make a cup of your favorite hot cocoa and place a peep on top
The peep will melt into the hot cocoa
Next is a sandwich!
When I was a kid, I used to love eating peanut butter and marshmallow sandwiches. Since a peep is just a marshmallow with colored sugar, I decided to make a peanut butter, banana, and peep sandwich!
Spread a layer of peanut butter on bread and add sliced banana
Top with a peep
Top the peep with the other slice of bread
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add sandwich
Top sandwich with a bowl or plate to help flatten
Once both sides are toasted and peep starts to melt, take off heat
While letting sandwich cool, continue placing bowl or plate on top
Once sandwich is cool, slice diagonally
Eat and enjoy! The only thing I would have done differently is to cut the peep so it would have been not only in the center of the sandwich.
